NOXO Odor Defense Pro™ has also been used by the Chicago Police Department Forensic Services Unit. “It has been very effective at blocking the majority of the decomposition odor,” said the director.
He issued samples of the gel to his unit, and according to his team’s feedback, the product improved their working conditions. “We cannot do anything about the sense of sight, but the sense of smell was the sense that most offended in crime scene investigations where the victim was in an extreme state of decomposition,” he said. He added that all of his evidence technicians and forensic investigators now use it.
NOXO has also been used in search and rescue missions in other countries, including the Bali Tsunami in December 2004, where the gel enabled first responders to work faster and thus recover bodies more quickly, decreasing the chance of disease spreading.
